Excellent almost silent foot controller, perfect for acoustic recording
Peegeebee, 08.02.2021
If like me you want to control your DAW to use as a looper pedal for acoustic guitar (and other instruments), the Blueboard is perfect, either for iOS or on Mac (and presumably on PC). The first version, which shipped with 1.0 firmware doesn't work with Mac, and the firmware updater is notoriously unreliable, so make sure to buy it new (for instance here on Thomann) rather than secondhand. The unit is all plastic and therefore isn't maybe up to the standard needed for a live gig, but for the home recording musician, it's brilliant, light, easy to set up and works great with most DAWs, guitar effects apps, etc, with a separate app that allows the re-routing of midi signals to the required destinations. For anyone looking for a truly full-featured (and very robust) alternative, the Xsonic Airstep is a marvel, but, especially when loop recording, its noisy click foot control buttons possibly make it more suitable for DI recording than for acoustic instruments.

Great Value! Works Perfectly.
benash, 09.07.2018
So we are in an age in which technology has got pretty advanced. I use this to control all my effects.. let me explain.

Equipment.
So I have a Fender Supersonic 22 Watt Combo. In the effects loop I have an Apogee One. Thats connected to my iPhone X. The iRig Blueboard Controls the iPhone.

Software
I use Bias FX over Amplitube (purely because Amplitube won't allow you to do what I want). In Bias FX I turn off all the Amp and Cab simulation, and purely use it just for effects. I use the iRig Blueboard software (free download) to connect the iRig Blueboard itself, to my via Bluetooth iPhone.

The iRig Blueboard software is great. You load it up, it searches for you Blueboard, you tap on the button and it connects. Its been flawless since I've owned it. Connects every time, even if in venues where theres loads of different wifi and bluetooth devices around.

Build quality is very good. Id of preferred for that casing to be a bit more durable, but saying that, it would detract from its lightness. Overall though, the build is great.

I highly recommend this if your after a Bluetooth Controller.

Dissapointed
Zipadidoodah, 15.04.2020
Didn’t work. With Mac OS X Catalina. Worked fine in iOS - Returned😓 Thomann however made returns easy and painless. Excellent service! If you are running a Mac that will work with - build quality was excellent.

Good bang for the buck
sybrgreen, 14.09.2018
I'm using this bluetooth pedalboard with Bias FX running on my iPad pro, for its price works smoothly; the delay of the preset change is often imperceptible while you are playing and overall it is a very versatile and user friendly pedalboard. You can download also its proprietary application on the app store to configure all the settings and to make your device recognize the pedalboard; you can also plug 2 expression pedals to modulate your effects.
It needs a 9 volts battery and the construction quality is not premium, but overall it works well.
